Dacor, a leader in eco-friendly kitchen appliances
Dacor® led the ultra-premium kitchen appliances category with the early adoption of environmentally safer R600a refrigerant and their commitment to ENERGY STAR®. They are demonstrating that a luxury homeowner can make choices which are better for the planet while not compromising on beautiful aesthetics and high performance features.
What is special about Dacor Refrigerators?
Yes, they are gorgeous in stainless steel or panel ready. But there are hidden eco-features which helps Dacor® lead the ultra-premium kitchen appliances category. As you would epect, these are ENERGY STAR® qualified. But the most innovative feature is their early move from R134a refrigerant to R600a, a naturally occurring refrigerant which is not only 40% more efficient but has significantly lower greenhouse gas effect. In fact, they won the 2017 E-Star Emerging Technology Award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for utilizing environmentally safer refrigerant. The system meets demanding EPA performance criteria and allows the columns to preserve freshness without harmful environmental effects. The units’ Precise Cooling technology maintains consistent internal temperatures, while a Flex Zone space adjusts temperatures for item-specific food storage needs.
Dacor’s premium column refrigerators feature built-in camera, auto-open doors, and best-in-class storage.
“This unmatched column refrigeration collection is modern, technologically advanced, and gives customers what they need in terms of flexibility and convenience,” said Dacor President and CEO Chuck Huebner. “The auto-open door provides virtually hands-free access, and each refrigerator includes a built-in camera that enables owners to monitor their groceries on the Dacor iQ Kitchen™ mobile application.”
With the largest capacity in the market at each column width, the units include an elegantly styled, all-stainless steel interior with three-sided tunnel LED lighting. The refrigerators also offer View Inside technology that uses a built-in door camera to provide users with an interior snapshot every time the doors close, making it easy to see exactly which items are inside and simplify the grocery shopping experience.
“The Heritage Column Refrigeration Collection provides homeowners with a completely different experience than any product in the ultra-premium kitchen appliance category,” said Dacor Vice President of Products David Nichols. “With exclusive features such as a hidden LED touch panel, unparalleled temperature control and more, Dacor’s new built-in column refrigerators and freezers will be the perfect addition to the home of anyone who enjoys hosting gatherings, large or small.”
Those who frequently entertain guests at home will appreciate the column freezer’s unique, dual setting ice maker which produces two types of ice: standard ice and cocktail ice. Cocktail ice cubes are clearer and have a higher density that allows them to last longer, making them perfectly suited for craft cocktails and other creative uses. The column freezers include separate bins for storing ice, allowing users to access the ice to match their beverage of choice and entertaining needs.
Built-in column refrigeration products are available in graphite or silver stainless and panel-ready configurations. Column refrigerators may be ordered in three sizes—24, 30 and 36 inches. Column freezers are available in four sizes—18, 24, 30 and 36 inches.
